To all the followers of this page, if you want to see an article written about any specific aspect of Emergency Care on the African continent, or get me to interview a key role player, drop me a mail. Equally, if you have any news items you would like us to run either in our magazine or on our daily-updated global ambulance news website please make contact.

To my fellow passionate EMS friends across the world, I trust you are enjoying the start of this journey, as we continue to explore this fascinating continent. Till then be safe out there and stay passionate, and for those who are privileged enough to spend time with their families over this holiday period – Enjoy!

Onward & Upward

This poem goes out to my buddy and dear friend, Victor  …thinking of you dude 🙂

the struggle against adversity

brings forth changes

dragging one

up or down



push upward

reaching for

higher levels of functioning

which did not previously exist



building resilience

absorbing damage

but not failing

bouncing back

Allure of the Curve

where the neck meets the shoulder

the head slowly turns

creating

mysterious shadows and hollows



the extension of her leg

as she reaches

rising, pushing

grasping, holding



the swell of her breasts

as she slowly inhales

and then

oh, so exquisitely

exhales



the allure of the thigh

disappearing upwards

towards

that mons



aahhh the beauty

of it all ….

with those dangerous

alluring curves
